Is it that fruit/sugar creates sugar CRAVINGS.. Like no end to eating.. craving..??????????????????  

When I just eat prot and veg I am fine.. add one fruit or whatever else and I am ready to eat the fridge doors..



Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

How much fruit are you allowed, Goldie? PLEASE don't eat the fridge doors!! I am allowed 1/2 cup in 3 servings per day. The only thing I go overboard on is watermelon. I CANNOT eat just 1/2 cup watermelon! No way! I probably eat my entire daily allowance in one serving! Then, I have my other fruits. About 1/3 cup each of blueberries and raspberries, part of a banana, 1/2 slice of fresh pineapple, a few dried cranberries and maybe 2 or three small chunks of dried pineapple. I do not gain weight eating this much fruit, but I have to be very careful about getting plenty of exercise! Also, I never eat any of this fruit without some kind of protein (nuts, and nut butters mostly) except the watermelon and fresh pineapple. And sometimes I will have an apple, a nectarine  and a tangerine (when in season). If I have the dried cranberries and pineapple they are in my sardine salad. I have the berries in my breakfast seed/lecithin/soy yogurt concoction. I will say, though, that of all the fruits I eat, a banana is the one I have to be the most careful about - especially if it is overripe. I don't remember ever eating a whole one even if it is small in my life.

The only time I crave sugar is when I've been out of town and eaten a bite or two of some dessert or other with friends. Takes me two weeks to get over these self-destructing abominations!

I am shocked at how the fruit sugar attacks MY ability to control ME even a little..

and I am pleasantly surprised how a few beans can satisfy much to the craziness.. at least make it bearable..  


When I - 2 table spoons of beans I feel satisfied.. in fact when I eat them my digestion is 'full' slow and happy..

NOW I just looked at Swami..

Portion Size: Nuts, Seeds: half cup; Nut Butters: 2 tablespoons
Frequency: 5 servings weekly

WELL that is a lot less for me, so I need to cut to one table spoon of 'black beans' per meal.. about half or less than I did so far.. no wonder my insides felt as if a sleep.. Nice though, no gas..  with the diamond beans..   I will be ok.. I see the wisdom of that amount..

Almond Butter
Almond Cheese
Almonds
Black Beans ◊
Butter Beans
Butternuts
Cannellini Beans
Carob ◊
Chestnuts, Chinese
Chia Seeds, Pinole
Flax Seeds
Great Northern Beans ◊
Hickory Nuts
Peas
Pinto Beans, Sprouted
Pumpkin Seeds ◊
Sesame Butter, Tahini
Sesame Flour
Sesame Seed
Walnuts ◊
Watermelon Seeds ◊
White Beans


Interesting list ... I think I like all diamonds. but detest carob.. I wonder why?  (must be good for me  )

Actually this list opens up a whole new way of thinking.. I will experiment and see further..

It might actually allow me to follow RuthyGirl  advice of eating beans.. thanks..  


SPRING... You are so lucky.. all that fruit would send me to the hospital from happiness and the biggest diabetic attack ..  

Being A I understand .. so different.. I am glad some can do what I can no longer eat..

Isa  .. maybe by the time I figure out life, I will be all educated..

I can't always tolerate fruit. A little juice in green tea in the morning with breakfast, and lemon juice on salads. Sometimes I can have a few berries with ricotta or quark cheese, but I don't always do well with the dairy. A few raisins mixed with almonds in my trail mix is also fine- but it's way more almonds than raisins.

For a while this summer, I did well going for a walk in the early morning, then having some watermelon, then my shower and then breakfast. But when I exercise at any other time of day, fruit before breakfast (or after a workout) just doesn't work. And I can only tolerate watermelon (a diamond) when it's in season and I can get the local, organic kind. Otherwise it just feels like pure sugar to me.

I just read about insulin resistance and that there is a relationship with the sugar spike and sending a message to the body that it is starving. So, given that you struggle with diabetes, you are not crazy- but the sugar spike makes you so. If that condition is healed, it won't be an issue.

I would gladly give up some of my other fruit if I could tolerate lemon juice and grapefruit!!! I just can't deal with the pain they cause.....
